Plague Vendor are back with their new album Bloodsweat, their most powerful and menacing work, and a record that cements the band as the purveyors of dark postpunk in the current scene. Bloodsweat is the much anticipated follow up to Whittier, CA band's debut album Free to Eat, which was cited by LA Weekly as "punkish dark rock that makes you want to dance and destroy everything around you." The songs on Bloodsweat were heavily road-tested before ever making it into the studio. During the recording process, they aimed to capture each track in as few takes as possible, avoiding many overdubs and embracing the same edgy production they bring to their live performances. Add to this the masterful mixing by Alan Moulder, who has mixed iconic records from Royal Blood, Nine Inch Nails, Foals, and The Killers to name a few.
